The BG-69 marked the first appearance by Jimi Hendrix at the Fillmore. Bill Graham scheduled the groundbreaking guitarist as third on the bill. This would be Hendrix's first public appearance after blowing away the audience at the Monterey Pop Festival just three days earlier. The promoter took serious heat for his lack of vision so the next time Hendrix played the Fillmore Graham made up for his error by commissioning Rick Griffin to create the most famous Fillmore poster ever, the BG-105.


This original first-printing poster ALWAYS gets special attention when it surfaces! This past December, a lesser graded 8.5 example realized $3900 in our auction. This info gives us clues about where this Hendrix poster lives within the world of this exciting marketplace. This poster is in great condition and would be an amazing piece for any collector to own!
